Love at Christmas


Whew! What a day. I made a card and .........well, let's just say I did it ALL WRONG (not this one). I got that straightened out and here I am uploading my card for the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #59. It is a fun sketch challenge.

This is an easy card and I now have one more in my Christmas stash.

I'm trying to figure out why my tiny, bottom gemstone looks larger than the others when it isn't.

My card is also entered into the Simon Says Stamp blog challenge-Anything Goes

Another darling snowman! My eye was immediately drawn to those pretty colors on his scarf!

So do you have two new cards for your Chirstmas box since the first one wasn't right? Sometimes our mistakes turn out to be perfect in another way. :)

Isn't this a great sketch? You really scored with a snowman (or snowlady) and a cardinal! Love the strip of paper and the rich red with the green and blue of the scarf!

You have a knack for making great snowman cards, and I love the way you framed this happy guy with red and some snowflake embossing! Those bright colors on his scarf might be enough to melt 20 pounds off of his body :) Cute card!

What a terrific snowman you have created Benzie, the all white background makes him pop!

There's just nothing more fun than snowmen, Benzi, and they make such perfect Christmas cards. I love all the white on this one with the pop of color in the scarf and the red mats. Magnificent!
